Insignificant Snowdrop..

Colour is optional..believing in yourself is not !!!

I can do many colours...can you ?
I can do many colours...can you ? | Source

never under estimate your strength.....


It was blustery cold, yet the earth was still..

as I watched it all going down the hill..

where all was covered in deep white snow..

And your footprints marked out the way to go ..

My Dad was leading me on you see..

showing me things his Dad had shown he...

that all in life has another side..

And it’s best to walk and not always ride..

For with all there is to see you know..

Sometimes it’s all beneath the snow..

Maybe a rabbit hole or such..

Or maybe something to never touch..

And yet when it all has changed from cold..

When the sun shines and it seems so bold..

And the snow turns into a mush you see..

There beneath the Apple tree sits a blossom that’s so pure and white..

You soon will know again everything ‘s all right....

And struggling as we all must do ..

no matter if it ‘s me or you..

For we must never stop..

Just like the pure white snowdrop..

And just like the old mustard seed..

It’s told in books we often read..

Yet... so small it has to fight too..

The same as I and the same as you..

So don’t give up when facing the test..

Just do what you can and give it your best..

Then just when you’re about to bloom....

You will learn.. oh... so very soon..

Perhaps in a pot... Or a bright. sunny spot...

That you are stronger than you thought.......

KJ: You managed to bring (happy and sentimental) tears to my eyes with this. This has to be one of my favorites from you. You describe the lessons your dear Dad taught in such a heart warming and loving way. So symbolic to everything else we must endure in life.

Beautiful, telling and so wonderful.

I'm voting it up and sharing it as well.

Faith Reaper...So glad you stoppped by and thanks for the compliment..we are all survivors of something in life..so in coming together how could we NOT overcome..

There is a Creator who gives us life , that is truly understood..but..He expects us to take responsibilty for what and where we go, and who comes in,who goes out,who you let stay in, and who you refuse to let out...so say " weedbychoice"...enjoy your sleep...

..well I truly do love the narrative flow here - it reads like a mini-movie and like the meaning of life - and there's nothing 'insignifcant' about your writing for you are significant, essential and endlessly entertaining with plenty of food for thought.

I left you a comment to your comment on my 'Geriatric Set' .......

kj force, Nature's lessons and secrets, especially when discerned through those who love us, provide wonderful guidance which gladdens and expands the heart.

Thank you for sharing this lovely memory and loving tribute to your dad.

Appreciatively, Stessily
